New stuff..

Just got a gorgeous pack of stuff from Anna's Craft Cupboard - omgolly goodness - lovin' it all!
Here's a LO I did today at my weekly crop day in town.
This one uses some October Afternoon paper, American Crafts Dear Lizzy paper, American Crafts Dear Lizzy dimensional stickers, Studio Calico Anthology alpha stickers

Also - you may have heard of Leeann Pearce?? She's an awesome scrapper - and currently on the Creative Team at SBM. She also happens to be a friend of mine and has opened a shop on Etsy full of her funky funky stuff. Check her out - you won't be sorry. It's over HERE. Even if it's just window shopping - it's fun to look at!!

Ok - might even put the kids to bed and scrap some more tonight with my new goodies - Bradley is at footy training tonight and staying in town so what better opportunity??

Our power is finally back on (and phone) after being hit by lightning in the big WA storm - after 61 hours!! No power here means no water either - it's been a long 61 hours!

Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety

Just a couple of LO's using the new Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety papers.

I just HAD to use them for this LO of my Dad's vegie garden. If you knew my Dad at all you would know that we are all surprised that he has started this garden - and on such a small scale. Dad is a retired (har har - not very retired...) farmer and we had visions of this garden out on the farm in a market garden fashion as when Dad does something, he does it big!
So it was a nice surprise that he's limited himself to the 'actual' garden at the house - although he has to know EVERYTHING about everything and I guarantee he would be able to tell you his fertiliser ratio just like that!LOL.
The top photo is proof of his 'thoroughness' (I think my mum would call it something else?? maybe obsessive??). He HAD to know how much water was coming out of each dripper and at what rate so he had buckets and eskies lined up to gauge it!LOL.
I tell you - his brain never stops!

Everything available at Anna's Craft Cupboard.

Jillibean Soup

I am loving the new Jillibean Soup papers, alphas and stickers available now at Anna's Craft Cupboard
The stickers particularly I was pleasantly surprised at (HERE). Most times when I buy these type of stickers I always have a bunch left over that I don't use - but these ones I think I will use all of them! Bold words hey?? They have scalloped borders, file tabs, alphabet stickers (I know! cool huh??), ones shaped like buttons - not to mention the journalling ones. Anyhoo - sorry - just thought I'd share my most recent 'fun' discovery....

Crate Paper "Pink Plum"

Also in my design team pack from Anna this month there was some Crate Paper "Pink Plum" papers and embellishments(sparkle layered chipboard is the technical name!) - I'm not usually a glittery girl but I just LOVED how soft and girly it is with the Niki Riki pink thickers that Anna had put with them!
This is one of my Lo's and I've done another but you'll have to wait until later in month to see that one.

Scribble Scrabble

In my DT pack this month from Anna's Craft Cupboard I got some of the Scribble Scrabble "Nana's Trunk" papers - I haven't used this brand before and I love them!
